Word on the street is the PA doesn't mess around. Here's what some folks had to say about the shows last weekend:
"Wow first time at the Hells Kitchen. Really nice space and sound. They need to get rid of that hideous styrofoam angel from behind the stage asap though. Who would want to perform under that thing."
"I had never been there either. Amazing sound. Seriously, it might be one of the best sounding rooms in the TC. That room seems like a good size too. Not too big and not too small. The bathroom was also noteworthy."
"First time playing there. I must agree that it sounds great there. Very nice staff that treated us well. Bands & fans - check this place out."
"Hell's Kitchen was a nice surprise. I haven't seen a show that sounded that good in a long time. Whoever set the place up and whoever is is doing sound is doing it right. Everyone seemed comfortable playing, too, which makes me think the sound on stage must have been pretty good, too..."
